Text does not appear is DXF file

I have created text using the text tool and using the "text profile"
function under insert, in both cases, when I "save as" a dxf file, the text
is not included. I'm sending this file to a CAM program and ultimately
to a Mill which will carve the text. What's the secret?
Thanks,

Bruce,
This is correct. There is a current limitation that the text profile does
not translate. All you will see in the DXF file is a box for the range of
the text. This is on the list for a future enhancement.
You can do this in Solid Edge by creating a part and extruding the text
profile. Create a drawing view of the part in draft and save as DXF.

What is an ETA for this "future enhancement".
For Solid Edge 2d users is there a fix to have text show up in .dxf files? Is there
a work around?

Danial,
It is currently a lower priority enhancement.
I do not have an ETA for implementation at this time.
There is not a workaround.
